A rare bronze vase, its statuesque form and phoenix-head handles inspired by ancient Chinese shapes. The decoration on the lower body suggests archaic Japanese Jomon pottery, while the tightly sculpt foliage with gilt detailing at the midsection is immediately identifiable as the work of the brilliant Meiji metalworker known by his art name, “Kako”. The Chokichi seal is on its base. This unique vase is in excellent condition with no damage. Height: 16.5” Meiji Period, Japan
